Sheffield BID Small Business Event

Sheffield Business Improvement District (BID) is hosting an event for small and independent businesses trading in Sheffield city centre. Deliberately aimed at businesses who are not yet contributing to the levy, which raises money to help stimulate new business in Sheffield City Centre, we’d like to encourage small businesses to get involved in shaping the Business Improvement District activities whether they be in retail, professional services or creative industries.

The first event will be held at Electric Works on 3rd February at 6.00 pm.  For small businesses based in Sheffield city centre, whatever the sector, this is an opportunity to bring along ideas or views that will help your business grow, attract new talent or make it easier to do business.
